Moylan replaced Skott Linebrink in the top of the seventh inning, and proceeded to chew through the Yankees line-up with three successive strikeouts. It was Moylan's third appearance for the Braves at Spring Training.
Also in the thick of the action was 'Alcohol Think Again' Perth Heat star Luke Hughes, who entered Minnesota's game against Pittsburgh in the fourth inning to pinch hit for second baseman Tsuyoshi Nishioka.
Hughes stepped up to the plate twice during the game, slamming a sacrifice fly to right field to earn his seventh RBI of Spring Training, while being struck out in his other appearance.
Teammate and Melbourne Aces infielder Justin Huber also played his part for the Twins, replacing shortstop Alexi Casilla in the bottom of the eighth inning, and stayed in the game at first base.
